Bans put in place by the coordinator are revised regularly, during the stoppage period, so as to get the ban lifted as soon as they and their group deem it safe to do so. Your cooperation will be greatly appreciated by all concerned. Tumby Bay & District Bushfire Working Group Committee Trevor Franklin - Fire prevention Officer
